Create a sweet doily place setting using your favorite scrapbook papers for a unique table decoration idea.
I received this product in exchange for my review. All opinions expressed are strictly my own. This post contains affiliate links.
Unfortunately, it does not appear that the starter kit here is available any longer.
However, if you have one already, you can still purchase cartridges for the kit, and there are some super cute ones.
If you cannot find a starter kit, do not fret!
You can still create these adorable doily place settings with a die cut machine which I will talk more about at the end of the post.
Basically it makes doilies or decorative rounded papers for your crafting and/or scrapbooking.
Shown above is the circle edge punch starter kit.
Let’s break it down…
1) a decorative edge punch cartridge,
2) the punch comes with a plastic cap which contains the counter punch to slip into the base, and
3) the base which holds your paper and the punch.
To get started, you need to remove the counter punch from the plastic and insert it into the base.
The decorative edge punch sits on top of the counter punch and stays attached with heavy duty magnets.
You can adjust the paper width using the sliding ruler (top left) and the circle diameter using the curved slide (bottom right).
I’m going to punch a 12″ doily so I need to set both of the number settings to 12.
Remove the round knob (it’s magnetic) and set your paper there.
Replace the round knob.
The center of the knob is see through and has cross hairs so you can line up the X you drew in the center of the paper.
Place the punch on the base and push down to push the punch through the paper.
Remove the punch, give the round knob a quick twist, and the paper will rotate just the right amount to make the next punch.
Replace the punch and continue on until you have worked your way all around the paper.
I used my 12″ doily as a placemat and the 6″ doily as a decorative utensil holder to make an adorable doily place setting.
Because of the double sided scrapbook paper, I can easily change the look of the place setting.
Wouldn’t this make a super fun addition to your holiday table!
It’s super easy to use and the end product is phenomenal.
Don’t have the starter kit?
Cut sweet shapes around the edges of your scrapbook paper using a doily die cut on your die cut machine!
I can’t speak for the Cricut, but I know the Silhouette Image Library has TONS of doily shapes (and I probably own half of them!).
